- Chance to instantly remove an enemy from combat when performing direct attack.
Black Hole can trigger from any type of single target attack, regardless of the weapon used. The ability can even trigger with status attacks that deal no damage.
The ability can actually be detrimental to grinding due to a loss of XP and Gold, as well as enemy-specific loot, if it triggers. Keep this in mind during combat. Additionally, the Star Matter gained from triggering Black Hole is rather valuable, particularly during the early game. It can also be used to take on Scourges or other tougher fights earlier, saving time.
- Join combat from an additional hex away.
As the Astronomer already has the Support Range skill baked in, some players may choose to swap out the Star Wand early on for something more favorable.

The Astrolabe carried by the Astronomer at the beginning of an adventure is based on a real instrument of the same name. It was historically used to perform navigational calculations, such as measuring angles of elevation, identifying celestial bodies, and triangulating the position of unknown bodies through known ones.
